A story to tell

Hi everyone! As you may know i have a page on this blog where you can share your story, and some of you have done that now. I’m going to start with a letter that describes the most delicate thing about love and how to heal a broken heart. The sender asked to be anonymous and of course we will let him. He told me that it was ok to reveal his gender due to the fact that it is easier to write about it then. He send me a letter, and for now we can call him Algot. (this is a shorter version of Algots letter since it was so long and beautiful, Algot if you are reading this, you should publish this a novel/poem book9. Algot is writing this to me:

– Hello Sonja, i have a story i would like to tell you. It is kinda the love you have been writing about before. I met the girl of my dreams when i was about seventeen, she was like a flower. So beautiful but so fragile, she had one a red dress the first time a saw her. And since then she was the lady in red. I heard a song called lady in red with the lyrics:
 – I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I’ve never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away
And I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight
The song could have been written by me. Everybody loved my lady in red, and i loved her so bittersweet. The love ended when my flower chose to end her life, and it felt like my soul was taken away with her. For a long time it felt like i couldn’t breath and that my life was just keep on going without any real purpose. When i read your blog Sonja and you wrote that a game of poker was almost like life i felt like we connected somehow. Maybe because i read the quote here before or because it hit me right in the heart. I don’t know. But what i know is that there is a few things that you can do to exclude or minimize the pain in your heart. The first one is the hardest one:

1. Accept the pain
2. Change your habits
3. Change your thoughts
4. Believe that you will find love again

I know i may seem hard and it is, but slowly taking these steps can make you heal your heart piece by piece. For me i took a long, long time. But now that i can think about her without feeling a huge pressure over my chest, and knowing that i am breathing with my lungs and automatic. It feels good. Of course i miss her everyday, and i will probably always love her. But now i am capable of loving someone else, and letting someone else into my life.
– I never will forget the way you look tonight, the lady in red, my lady in red, i love you / Algot

For you Algot i also post this video, i really hope that you will find yourself a new lady in red!
